Muscadet Terre de Pierre 2015, Pierre Luneau-Papin, Loire, France

crisp, brioche, lime flower
Pierre Luneau studied with the renowned Emile Peynaud and Ribereau-Gayon and has been making superb Muscadet for many a decade now. He makes a variety of wines, differentiated by type of land in which the vine grows. 'Terre de Pierre' is planted on the best soils in the vineyard, imparting terrific complexity to the wine which is initially taut with cool oyster-shell notes before unveiling more complex aromas of salt butter, gorse blossom and river stone and a palate bound together by soothing acidity.
